The official LEGO DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future goes on sale August 1. The kit, containing Minifigs of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmet “Doc” Brown, is based on a design submitted to LEGO by fan builders Masashi Togami and Minifig Builder Sakuretsu. The two are donating their royalties from the product to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. LEGO Back to the Future

Here are some examples of projects from the Unofficial Lego Technic Builder's Guide. I'm surprised by the complexity of the vehicles and robots that you can build with these components. (And how could anyone resist the far-out soundtrack that accompanies the trailer?)
Last night, LEGO kicked off the countdown to the Halloween season by inviting the New Orleans community to build a 12-foot tall LEGO vampire by the light of the full moon in the company’s first ever all night build.
